    Great laptop. SDD a bit small, but easily upgradable. :)

    •  

      Worth spending that much money on it?

      • -1 vote

        Definitely, SSD will cost you $100-200 depending on size and speed.

        Add in a USB-C dock and with one cable you can connect everything you need including two big external displays. :)

        • +3 votes

          Don't trivialise this point. Docking support might as well be non-existent. The basic USB-3 dock is a piece of crap, and after nearly a year of unfulfilled promises and stalling Dell pulled their TB-15 dock rather than fixing all the problems with it, which was pretty much the only thing that excused this laptop from being so reliant on USB-C for connectivity. Check out the /r/dell reddit for dock experiences - it's not as simple as "just connect any USB-C dock". Especially not if you want monitors hooked up or power over the USB-C cable. Hell it doesn't even work properly with Dell's own 4K USB-C monitors - I can only get 2560x1440 resolution, any higher and there's no signal (have tried multiple OS and two different laptops).

          It's a fairly nice portable laptop in this configuration. Even better in i3 form. The i5/i7 takes a big toll on the battery life, and QHD screen options completely kills it - combine that with the terible connectivity and this is not something I would buy again expecting to get any serious work done on it.

          @Chroma:

          My i5 with no QHD screen from 2015 is still going strong. I'd recommend that XPS13 any day. Sad this one isn't as good.

          The Dell TB15 dock has been well publicized with reliability issues such as waking from sleep, etc. My company has changed to the Targus DOCK410AUZ USB-C Dock and has been problem free since (we also use Dell). Granted it is only USB-C Gen 2 with DisplayPort Alt Mode, it can still do 4K and charging over USB-C. It even connected with our HP Elite X3 phone with full functionality (charge, video, network, USB). It literally work on first plug. Its not even the same brand. It is the gold standard for enterprise environment in my humble opinion.

        •  

          @Chroma: Thanks for the info. Admittedly I have tried with USB-C powered monitors. Using a DELL USB-C dock to connect everything besides monitors.

        •  

          @Chroma: Quick update about the issues with the TB15 they are replacing all TB15's with TB16's. Which has resolved all issues of the original!

    My only concern is regarding the coil whine in the XPS 13.

      It's the only reason I've held off on buying one, seems to be on most devices. No refresh on the horizon yet :'(

      i have razer blade stealth and it also has coil whine… you can't hear it unless you put your ear near the "QWE" of the keyboard.
      not sure about XPS but i assume it be the same.

    •  

      And the noisy fan.

    • +5 votes

      Coil whine is a nightmare for me. I can't use the laptop in the evenings at home. My hearing is more sensitive than normal and the whine is louder than any other laptop Ive used.

    •  

      This is also what has stopped me (and what is stopping me from taking-up this offer).

      Would anyone be able to recommend some alternatives which are around the same specs and build quality, but with 100% less whine of death?

      •  

        Don't have personal experience with it, but back when I was shopping for the 9350, it was a very close call against the Asus Zenbook (skylake revision), ended up going with the Dell since Asus' skylake revision was not locally available by my company's laptop claiming deadline. They've also announced a Kaby Lake refresh recently, certainly worth considering if you don't need a dedicated GPU. I still recommend google-checking for coil whine and audio hiss, just in case.

      •  

        I bought the Lenovo IdeaPad 710s which is very similar to this. Bigger HD but no Thunderbolt unfortunately. I don't notice any coil whine but I'm pretty insensitive to high frequencies so maybe not the best judge. This was the price recently: https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/280898

    • +2 votes

      9350 owner here, can confirm. Before this laptop, I never thought coil whine could possibly be this loud. Could've sworn I was going mad and imagining a spinning HDD in there.

    •  

      Never heard of this problem till ozb…. I did buy the ms sig edition if the makes any difference.

    •  

      Had my XPS 13 for over a year, haven't noticed this.

    •  

      I have the xps13 9350 (no idea how it differs from the 9360). It's very quiet, never had any coil whine to speak of.

      I love it, such a great laptop.

    •  

      I have a 9350 and I don't notice the coil whine with regular use. I can hear it very mildly if I put my ear up to the QWE part of the laptop.

    •  

      I also have had the 9350 for 18 months+ without coil whine. I do have an issue where headphones plugged in aren't recognised until the unit is put to sleep and then woken back up… Took them 6 months to fix it and then it came back out of warranty. To clarify it does work after the sleep/awake cycle.

    • +1 vote

      Feel like I should warn you guys about their Pro (onsite) support, though. While it's global, it's also completely terrible. Got an XPS 13 (9350) with some USB port and audio noise issues, they flipped me off repeatedly for 3 months before finally acknowledging the issue and sending in a tech, who ended up breaking more things than fixing, and then they flipped me off until the warranty was over and then just GTFO-ed. One of their earlier CS reps even assured me that warranty will persist for my ticket until it's resolved, another CS rep later completely backtracked on it and left me with a barely functioning laptop. Lodged a complaint with ACCC.

        With a Pro warranty?? That's incredibly unusual.. I've only had stellar experience with their Pro support team. 😕

        • +1 vote

          Comes down to luck, I suppose. To be fair, their onsite technicians were amazing (except for the breaking part, probably honest mistake), but arranging to send them through the phone/e-mails were nightmares.

  •  

    Does it have the standard 2 year warranty tho? as its sourced form overseas.

  •  

    Hmm, tempting. Are they ever better value than this in the outlet store?

    • +1 vote

      Pricing is close, but doubt you'll get a 7th gen CPU on the outlet

    •  

      I got a 6th Gen i5-6200U from the outlet just before Christmas for $1029

      Haven't noticed any coil whine either

  •  

    Latest CPU but previous gen Memory

  •  

    Got one of these a while back int he last 20% off sale. Just be aware that they have some issues with TP-Link routers that causes them to crash the whole router.

    Have been trouble shooting with dell support for the last 2-3 months and it seems that it is the killer 1535, TP-Link and windows 10 combo that has been causing all the trouble.

    Still haven't gotten it fixed yet - great laptop besides that.

    •  

      Did you get the skylake or the kabylake variant of this laptop?

      Curious, because I got the Skylake version and the wireless card is so crap… can barely transfer faster then 10mb/s over the network.

      •  

        I have the Kaby Lake. But I believe it is the same problem. Have yet to receive a reply from Dell even though they sent a techician out to replace my wireless card (to the exact same card, mind you) - and it didn't fix it.

        •  

          I've had 2 techs come out to look into the coil whine issue.

          So far they've replaced the motherboard, DC adapter, and the fan. After all that, the tech guy contacted the support team and they confirmed to him the laptop is working as intended with the coil whine. Coil whine is "part of the design" of the laptop haha.

          But to get a refund or replacement of any sort, need to get the techs out to do their part.

          I'll be contacting them again shortly to look into my Skylake XPS 13 in the coming weeks/months.

          I purchased it July 2016.

  •  

    Hmm, pity it's non-touch!

  •  

    Is this the Kabylake one?

  •  

    Any idea if the memory is upgradable or not? Can't seem to find anything definitive.

    •  

      I believe it supports upto 16GB as per Dell website.

      •  

        Nice. If only there was a way to customise the purchase on ebay to add that in… I'm buying it for work and I don't want to void any warranty by upgrading it myself. Any suggestions as to how to get a memory bump whilst keeping the warranty intact? Also need to get Win 10 Pro too…

      • +4 votes

        The RAM is soldered though, so it wouldn't be upgradable.

          @b4rgainhunter: Mmm, that means you can buy it with up to 16GB of memory. You can't buy an 8GB model and upgrade it to 16GB yourself.

    Great price for this model (although would prefer i7 - 6th gen). Just wish I could rationalise spending 1.3k when I already have a perfectly fine laptop.

    Have used a few of these at work and never noticed the coil whine that's often talked about whenever these are posted.

    Integrated graphics don't expect to game

      XPS's aren't gaming machines - but you'd still get away with playing indies, Rocket League, Civ 6, etc on this.

    •  

      Saw a video on YouTube and they played Dirt at 28fps. Looked pretty good to me. And the biggest attraction with these is the underbolt port so you can buy an external gpu in future if you really want to game on it,

      • +2 votes

        28fps isn't really gaming. You'd need to try hack a razer core - which in itself is a $1000 device without a GPU and isn't guaranteed to work on non razer products

  •  

    does this have pen input option

    looking at this or surface book

    •  

      No, it doesn't.
      Surface Book has plenty of its own problems though. Depending on your use case I would be looking at HP Spectre or Lenovo Yoga (X1 or 910) instead.

  •  

    one thing to note with the xps 13 (the skylake version AND the new kaby-lake one) is that the thunderbolt 3 port is actually hard-wired to only run at half-speed… shouldn't be a big issue for most people, but something to be aware of when spending this much money.
    https://egpu.io/forums/pc-setup/xps-15-9550-not-able-to-reac...

    •  

      Any reason for Dell to do this? Seems pointless…

      •  

        completely agree - i have no idea why they would do this (assuming it was intentional and not just a big oversight) considering they explicitly advertise the TB3 port as being "up to 40gb/s" - which is physically impossible using the current hardware configuration. super dodgy.

        i think when thunderbolt 3 devices become more prevalent there'll be more backlash over this issue - but for now, it hasn't even been widely reported on, let alone addressed by Dell.

    Geez I guess those that can hear coil whine are either newly married or single. I have evolved to tune out any whine from any source, after being married for a long time.

    /s

  •  

    Is the one in this deal Kabylake or skylake????!???????

  •  

    Is the coil whine something to worry about

    •  

      I don't mind it and it doesn't cause any damage or performance degradation, but a lot of people do, especially when spending this much on a laptop. Anyway, this video (the start of it) is a good example of the sort of noise (take into account the microphone is directly on the laptop though).

  • +2 votes

    I have an XPS 13 and have no coil whine. Never even heard of it until I started using this forum and now every time there is an XPS 13 deal one or two people (probably the same people) mention it.

    •  

      I suspect it could be with different variations of the XPS 13.

      The one I have has the QHD touch screen with i7 CPU with IRIS iGPU. The coil whine is terrible, especially when I'm recording a webinar in full screen for example. You can distinctively hear it within arms reach of using the laptop. If I have time, I'll upload what mine sounds like when watching a webinar.

      You should be thankful you have a machine which doesn't coil whine, and try to not seek out what your laptop would sound like if it did :p.

      •  

        I have the i7 6560u QHD xps and I cant hear coil whine unless I put my ear to the keyboard and even then it is very quiet.

      You could upgrade the SSD to 512GB on this model for less than the price difference. It's just an M.2

          I have seen Samsung in XPS 13 9350 but it may vary depending upon on capacity/date of manufacture. Any stardard sized m.2 form factor drive will work though.

    Wish there was an XPS 15 in Australia with i5-7200U, 1080 screen, and no graphics card for say $1,600 or less.

  •  

    Not sure if I should get this or a refurbed i7-6560U with 256gb SSD and QHD for the same price when it pops up in the outlet

    •  

      In a similar situation, I guess it's double the battery vs double the fps in games… I wish there were i7-6560u FHD's on the outlet for less, but some forums say the battery life gain isn't significant :/

    •  

      I know nothing about current CPU's and GPU's. But I'd definitely like the QHD screen and larger SSD is a bonus. The coil whine issue is putting me off a bit though. Might even consider the 15, still portable enough but with a more eye friendly screen size.

      That's not an ultrabook its almost a kilo heavier and the build quality on the e series isn't great. People buy the macbook air/xps 13/x360 etc because they are ultrabooks (super portable, fast and quiet) not because of the specs.

      If you check purchase history, you'll notice it sold for AU $2,549.00 before ebay discount. If I was to get this, I would wait for the same thing to happen, that means, wait for Dell to provide a discount on the RRP, then apply the ebay discount on top for extra savings.
